Apple begins discounted battery replacement program in S. Korea

Apple sanctioned in Qualcomm court case for withholding documents Apple apologizes for secretly slowing older iPhones

This has been done to regain the customer trust.

In the United Kingdom, a replacement battery for an iPhone 6 or newer will now cost just £25, down from £79. The new prices are in line with the global price reduction of $79 to $29.

IPhone users seemed to have accepted the arrangement, with many people making bookings online to avail of the low-priced battery replacement program. Do note that, one has to pay the GST separately with the price tag.

Green Bay (two fumbles and an interception), two of which thwarted Packers scoring opportunities inside Detroit's red zone. Stafford is the fastest quarterback in National Football League history to reach 3,000 completions in a career.

According to Apple, replacing the old battery will return the iPhone's performance back to the normal levels. In response to the company's statement that it would never degrade performance to drive replacement purchases, one user on Apple's support forums yesterday wrote, "You mean like making it very hard for people of average technical skill almost impossible to replace the battery and not using a generic battery form factor?" The firm also surprised the market by offering more transparency on battery life information through the next iOS update. It also assured that this was not done to make users upgrade to newer models, rather it said that "the goal has always been to create products that our customers love, and making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that". A number of benchmarks are run on the five iPhone 5S handsets.

"We've been hearing feedback from our customers about the way we handle performance for iPhones with older batteries and how we have communicated that process". Further, the company will issue an iOS software update with new features that give users more visibility into the health of iPhone's battery, so can see if battery problem is affecting the performance of the device.

Apple has said that replacement batteries are available at any Apple Service Centre of iCare branch in Thailand.
